Ben G celebrates their anniversary in style with a very special Nike SB collaboration. Originally previewed towards the end of September, the Ben G x Nike SB Blazer Hi Premium honors of the 5th Anniversary of the Amsterdam-based sneaker boutique. The shop owner, Mr. Ben G, drew inspiration from a popular candy egg from the 70’s for the theme and color inspiration behind his design. The sneakers feature a white pebbled leather base, contrasted by a black, canvas covered Swoosh, and lined with a grey textile. On the heel tab of the sneakers is the shop’s name, with Ben in black and G in orange, while a further hit of orange is also visible on the outsole. What you don’t see until sliding the shoes on is the yellow insoles which include a graphic of a broken chocolate egg with a dog sitting in the center, a reference to the surprise the candy egg’s included.
The Ben G x Nike SB Blazer Hi Premium is scheduled to release through Ben G’s Amsterdam-location this coming Saturday, October 30th. A wider, global release will follow on November 15th, 2010. Continuing reading for a closer look at the Ben G x Nike SB Blazer Hi Premium and when your done hit up HighSnobiety to read a quick interview they had with the shop’s owner about the sneakers. You’ll be surprise to learn which popular Nike SB release Ben G created first, before deciding to drop the idea and move on to what we see now.
